I was ordering some Aqua Globes today (I don’t normally fall for these as-seen-on-TV products but this one seems to fit a need I have) and saw on their site a bold statement of “100% SECURE SITE”. You can see it here. Apparently the same folks that have infiltrated other e-commerce sites claiming “HACKER PROOF”.
Wow – what a BOLD statement!
I wonder how often they test their site/application using automated scanners and manual hacking techniques. What about the OS/network layers…yet another area to test. Maybe they’re referring to the SSL certificate their server uses…? We all know the limitations of SSL. It’s only a tiny tiny component of Web security.
I certainly wouldn’t want that on my e-commerce site…nothing but an invitation for trouble.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
